Circadium: iEye

August 1, 2006

Man, this computer sure is great. It does everything. Like, The Wife has all of the meds and appointments and reminders of stuff on the iCal(endar). Best thing is, it remembers what day it is, too. Sweet.

But we’re supposed to be worried about things that do everything, right? I mean, especially computers. Because they’ll steal our jobs and take over our lives and stuff. Though it would be pretty cool if this computer could get up in the middle of the night to change a diaper and set up a feed. Not so bad…

If you think about it, though, it is kind of strage. All of the stuff– iTunes, iMovie, iDisk, iCal. And it all connects to the iWeb. Kind of big brother. Especially this camera here that is always looking at me. That’s very big brother. But it really could take over the world. Becuase it all knows all aobut what we listen to and look at and talk about and everything. and then it compiles it somewhere to track us. Plus, did you ever notice that i could mean “eye”? Like in DC, where they spell I Street, “Eye” Street? Maybe the ‘eyes’ are all looking at us, to design a world where everything is designed for us. Based on what we like, or maybe based on what they want us to like, right?

But why is big brother always bad? Maybe it would be good to have someone plug us into the Matrix, you know?

    You know, I think you’re at the point where you might really enjoy Paul Reiser’s “Babyhood” and Bill Cosby’s, “Fatherhood”. It’s was around this point in my post-natal life that I was so exhausted and so crazy feeling (feeling like life would never be normal again) that I knew I just needed to laugh. These two books really hit the spot at that moment in my life :)
